Water Treatment for Oil and Gas
Director of IDA, former Co-Chair of Humanitarian Committee
We are all thought very early in life that Oil and Water don’t mix! But later, the ones who pursue careers in the Oil & Gas industry have to learn that Chapter all over again. Water, the way it is currently used in the upstream Oil & Gas extraction, is constantly mixed with Oil. While this is quite an annoyance for the Oil producers, it represents an outstanding opportunity for water treatment companies and scientists. Current environmental regulations and modern oil recovery techniques both contribute to create a new and sizeable market for desalination and reuse technologies which did not exist only a few years back. This presentation will review multiple applications and geographies where water treatment is greatly needed for Oil and Gas production.

Sustainable Water Purification with Carbon and Iron
Prof. Akira Kojima, Gunma National College of Technology
Carbon fibers purify water through four actions: (1) quick improvement in transparency; (2) reduction in the number of free-floating suspended solids; (3) reductions in COD and BOD ; and (4) reductions in total nitrogen.
The carbon and iron material is a water decontaminator that creates a beautiful water environment in rivers and lakes to control water bloom without any additional burden on the environment.
Water purification technologies using carbon fibers and irons have eight characteristics: (1) utilization of the local production of living organisms for local consumption; (2) slow-paced; (3) fostering the proliferation of animals, plants, insects, fish and other organisms; (4) a dredging technology friendly to ecosystems and nonpolluting to the nature by taking advantage of the actions of living organisms rather than relying on chemicals and heavy machinery; (5) requiring very little operational energy; (6) feasible with minimal maintenance; (7) low-tech; and (8) compatible with developing countries.

SWRO IWP in Ghana
Mr. Atsushi Kato, Sojitz Corporation
Sojitz Corp. jointly with Spain’s major water business company, Aengoa Water, will participate in a desalination (SWRO) IWP in Ghana. After WPA with Ghana Water Co., Ltd.(GWCL) became effective, they started construction work in 2012 and are expected to supply 60,000m3/day fresh water from autumn 2014 at Nungua, near Accra, Republic of Ghana. This project is the first desalination IWP project in sub-Saharan Africa. On the other hand Japanese Prime Minister Abe announced at TICAD-V last June that over the next five years, Japan will support African growth through public and private means of US$32 billion which includes US$6.5 billion for infrastructure development.
Solution for wastewater treatment in developing countries (Angola project etc.)
Mr. Kenshi Nishimura, Teijin Limited
In general, wastewater treatment equipment consists of water treatment and sludge treatment which requires skilled operators to keep treated water in good condition. And waste sludge produced through the system is a serious problem. Construction work needs and In developing countries, securing skilled operators and construction material is very difficult and there are a lot of problems in introducing our way of construction which needs massive engineering work and machine installation. We are going to introduce our wastewater treatment package for developing countries based on our biological treatment process, “MSABP”which minimize the production of waste sludge. We will explain Angola project and our future plan.
Decentralized Water Treatment & Supply System - An Application in Kenya -
Mr. Hiroaki Todoriki, Wellthy Corporation
Decentralized water treatment and supply system with membrane technology has been introduced at an increasing pace in Japan, especially in the area of groundwater purification by the private sector. The system is generally called “Groundwater Membrane Filtration System”, and it includes all the components to treat water from water source and supply to the water tap in the same way as public waterworks do. In addition, the purified groundwater (treated water) has quality to meet Japanese drinking water standard, and the treated water is blended with municipal water (from public waterworks) in the storage tank of users. This combined (dual source) water supply system is quite effective in avoiding interruption of drinking water supply in the case of a disaster. For this reason, the groundwater membrane filtration system has been attracting attention of stakeholders as one of the effective countermeasures for disasters. This lecture will introduce some examples of Wellthy’s decentralized water treatment and supply system in Japan and in Kenya, referring to its expected roles and challenges in the future.
